Superhydrophobic Polymer Coatings: Fundamentals, Design, Fabrication, and Applications offers a comprehensive overview of the preparation and applications of polymer coatings with superhydrophobicity, guiding the reader through the advanced techniques and underpinning scientific principles.

The first section of the book presents detailed information on the fundamental theories and methods behind the preparation of superhydrophobic polymer coatings, also discussing key considerations and concepts such as nanomaterials, tunability and wettability, stability under external stimuli, and characterization. The close relationships between polymer composition, hierarchical micro/nano surface topography, roughness, and chemical structure, are emphasized, enabling the reader to gain a clear and detailed understanding of how to prepare polymeric systems with superhydrophobic surfaces. The second section demonstrates the current and potential applications of these materials, covering a range of novel and marketable uses across industry; these include coatings with properties such as foul resistance and self-cleaning, anti-icing and ice-release, corrosion inhibition, antibacterial, anti-reflection, slip and drag reduction, and oil-water separation, as well as a chapter dedicated to advanced medical applications.

This book is a highly valuable resource for academic researchers, scientists and advanced students working on polymer coatings or polymer surface modifications, as well as those across polymer science, polymer chemistry, plastics engineering, and materials science. The detailed information in this book is also of great interest to scientists, R&D professionals, product designers and engineers across industries, looking to develop products with superhydrophobic coatings.
